Upload multiple Files from single "File upload input" control

Posted By:-Rocky Singh

Today I come across a situation in one of my projects where I had to upload multiple files from a single input file control in HTML. And I found its not possible in HTML to upload multiple files from a single file upload control.
Luckily, I found 2 ways to achieve this functionality. And both are using JavaScript code (JQuery).

1. Upload files one by one from a single file upload control.
Checkout this plug-in:

2. Select multiple files from the browse popup, pressing “CTRL” button on your keyboard.
Checkout this JQuery plug-in this really works: http://www.uploadify.com
There must be more ways to do this same thing. If you know them please discuss in comments.
